Hello there,

I recently created the meterpreter_binaries gem which aims to contain libs and binaries for Metasploit's Meterpreter. I was wondering if I could please have this gem removed completely for the following reasons:

  • Rapid7 have decided that they want the gem renamed to meterpreter_bins.
  • The first few versions of the gem were released with binaries that were not intended for public use (ie. they were proprietary). So removal of those gems would be very much appreciated.

I have already yanked the gems, but the permanent removal would be very much appreciated. Thank you for your time and help!

OJ

    I've added [email blocked] to this thread, which is the email listed in the gemspec. Can someone from that domain please confirm the deletion of this gem?

    Hi Nick -- please do remove the gem completely. If you like, I can pretend to be [email blocked] ; since I was OJ's manager I have temporary access to his e-mail here at Rapid7 to chase down stuff like this now that OJ isn't on contract with us any more.

    Thanks!

    A response from inside the domain is good enough, thanks!

    Deleted the gem. Please add allowed_push_host to your private gems for now on:
